Tantraa is the best place we've found in fort cochi. Clean, fresh, comfortable beds, friendly host Babu, great price. Go here. Rooms on base floor are great. The rooms are tasteful simple and new. The sheets are clean and its on a private side street walking distance to the main town.

Nice clean rooms, reasonable rates, walking distance to the beach, restaurants and shops of all kinds. Our host or his partner were always available and so personable, making...
